Buy These Sandals if You Don’t Want to Look Tragic This Spring
I hate sandals, like, a lot.
I don’t know what it is, but I just think they’re really ugly the majority of the time. It’s not that I mind showing my toes, I just don’t think there are a lot of options for cute sandals once it gets warm out.

The plus side is that flip-flops aren’t trendy anymore, but the minus side is that it’s still hard to find a cute pair of sandals that you actually want to wear. If you’re like me, you probably cling on to the one pair of semi-cute and comfy sandals that you have — even if they’re trashed.
Well, it’s 2017, and it’s time to update your warm weather footwear. We’ve hand-picked some flat sandals that pack a stylish punch and won’t make you look like you’re stuck in the 2000’s.
1. These Wild Thang Slides
Steve Madden Patches Slide Sandal, $50
These pack a bunch of trends into one, incorporating a little bit of fur, patches, and the slide sandal style that’s super popular right now. They kind of look like something you would’ve owned in 2004, except without the platform and way cuter.
2. This Chic Emo Pair
Boohoo Daisy Studded Cuff Detail Sandal, $25
As a former emo girl myself, I always found it super hard to find sandals that matched with my edgier style and didn’t make me look like a mom. Thankfully, it’s getting a little easier due to some emo-ish trends coming up, and these fit the bill without being too in-your-face. Buy these and you’ll probably get a shitload of wear out of them.

3. These Barely Sandal Sandals
Alice + Olivia Ramona Stones Sandal $275
These are honestly too chic to even be considered sandals, but alas, they are. Unfortunately, they’ve got a price-tag that goes with a chic pair of sandals, but we think buying these would be worth it since it’s so hard to find a nice pair of summer flats.
4. This Basic, But Classic Pair
ASOS FLIQUE Wide Fit Leather Flat Sandals, $25
These may not “update” your look per se, but these are a more classic pair of sandals that are still cute and will match with pretty much anything. What are you waiting for? Buy these so that you don’t have to wear your sandy pair from last summer.

5. These Cutesy Denim Slides
Bill Blass Carmen Slide Sandal, $125
Denim is such a thing lately and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. We love the denim accents on these sandals that takes a basic pair up to 2017’s standards.
6. These Futuristic Funk Machines
Okay, these kind of look like a Miley Cyrus acid trip, but in a good way? Buy these to ensure that you’ll stand out from every basic in black gladiators at summer parties.
7. These Shoes That Are Doing Velvet For Summer
New Look Wide Fit Chunky Velvet Cross Strap Mule, $40
If it wasn’t clear already, then these prove it. People are definitely taking the velvet trend into summer. We don’t hate it. I mean, these look a lot less sweat-inducing than the fur slides that everyone was rocking last summer.
8. These Rhinestone Stunnas
LFL by Lust For Life Slides, $85
Alright, I low-key need these, and you do too. Just like many of 2017’s trends so far, they’re extra af, but like, in a good way.
9. These Hippie AF Sandals
Love Moschino Heart Sandals, $196
It’s never a bad time to use your feet to tell the world that all they need is peace and love.
10. These Grandma Chic Espadrilles
Forever 21 Faux Suede Floral Espadrilles, $19
Embroidery isn’t just for denim, these espadrilles showcase some floral details on a faux suede. Very day-drinking appropriate, and also very trendy these days.
